I can't seem to find a chess tileset! Not even a bad one. I've looked in a few places but can only find chess pieces arbitrarily sized

This isn't exactly suitable for this site - but it's relatively easy to find so I'll show you what I've come across.

A few can be found from below:

Hopefully this is at least somewhat helpful!

Thanks, i found these however I don't consider these a tileset as there is no Tile width/height defined –  Matthew Haworth Feb 3 '13 at 23:12
    
What do you mean? Just chop them into single images if you feel the need to tile them and extract the width and height from each image with whatever library you're using... your definition of tile sheet seems to be very skewed. –  Vaughan Hilts Feb 3 '13 at 23:25
    
I would like to have each tile on the same image and use my library to read each of them based on their location on that image, therefore need the tiles to be evenly spaced –  Matthew Haworth Feb 3 '13 at 23:33
    
Those chess pieces are indeed, evenly spaced out. Check them out, and you'd realize that by examining their individual dimensions. You can reduce the above image into a 128x64 image if you prefer too consistently of only the red and yellow tile - simply edit them yourself accordingly... –  Vaughan Hilts Feb 3 '13 at 23:36

They are available as symbol characters in many fonts, you can just pick a font with a set you like:

♔ ♕ ♖ ♗ ♘ ♙ ♚ ♛ ♜ ♝ ♞ ♟

♔ ♕ ♖ ♗ ♘ ♙ ♚ ♛ ♜ ♝ ♞ ♟

♔ ♕ ♖ ♗ ♘ ♙ ♚ ♛ ♜ ♝ ♞ ♟
